Photographer's Note

Giwa or if in blue colour Chong-Giwa. These stones can be found in many temples in Korea, lining the grounds along paths within the temple grounds. People donate small amounts to the monks and write their wishes and prayers on the stones. Still used to cover the roofs of houses. It is believed that Buddha will grant the wishes written and bring fortune in return for the offering.
